Vidant Health restructures police departments

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Vidant Health is restructuring two separate police departments and creating a Vidant Health Police Department.

It’s an effort to provide appropriate jurisdiction for all properties owned or leased by Vidant Health. The measure will also create uniform policies, procedures, and best practices.

In a statement, the organization says the new model designates responsibilities for both sworn law enforcement and public safety work.

At the Vidant Health campus in Greenville, 17 positions will be designated for sworn police officers and the remaining positions will be designated as public safety officers.  Vidant already employs several sworn officers to fill in as needed, plus a police chief who is also a sworn officer.  

The restructure means that one police department will have jurisdiction on all properties owned or leased by Vidant Health.
